English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. restriction

    A bar is something that is or may be firmly fixed, ordinarily with intent to prevent entrance or egress; as, the bars of a prison cell; the bars of a wood-lot. A barrier obstructs, but is not necessarily impassable. Barrier is used of objects more extensive than those to which bar is ordinarily applied. A mountain range may be a barrier to exploration; but a mass of sand across the entrance to a harbor is called a bar. Discovered falsehood is a bar to confidence. Barricade has become practically a technical name for an improvised street fortification, and, unless in some way modified, is usually so understood. A parapet is a low or breast-high wall, as about the edge of a roof, terrace, etc., especially, in military use, such a wall for the protection of troops; a rampart is the embankment surrounding a fort, on which the parapet is raised; the word rampart is often used as including the parapet. Bulwark is a general word for any defensive wall or rampart; its only technical use at present is in nautical language, where it signifies the raised side of a ship above the upper deck, topped by the rail. Compare BOUNDARY; IMPEDIMENT.

    Synonyms:
    bar, barricade, barrier, breastwork, bulwark, hindrance, obstacle, obstruction, parapet, prohibition, rampart, restraint

    Antonyms:
    admittance, entrance, opening, passage, road, thoroughfare, transit, way

    Preposition:
    A barrier to progress, against invasion; a barrier between nations.

  4. Albert Einstein:

    By academic freedom I understand the right to search for truth and to publish and teach what one holds to be true. This right implies also a duty one must not conceal any part of what on has recognized to be true. It is evident that any restriction on academic freedom acts in such a way as to hamper the dissemination of knowledge among the people and thereby impedes national judgment and action.

  5. Legacy Church:

    We observed the majority of those attending services wore a mask as they entered, if a person refused to wear a mask, we assumed they had a preexisting health condition or other restriction that prohibited them from doing so.
